I wanted to share these two products with everyone because I found the outcome of these two products to be quite shocking.
Let’s start off with Philosophy’s cleanser Purity. This product can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, and maybe even Macy’s. This product runs from $11.00-$55.00USD (SUPER EXPENSIVE!) In my pictures I have the $11.00 bottle that can fit right in the Palm of your hand. For those who don’t know the hype around this product (which is just utterly ridiculous!) I will fill you in now!
Purity made simple one-step facial cleanser is our award-winning cleanser, loved by all for its multitasking, 3-in-1 approach to cleansing. purity made simple gently cleanses, tones and melts away all face and eye makeup in one simple step, while lightly hydrating. skin is left feeling perfectly clean, comfortable and balanced.
- deep cleans pores and eliminates makeup build-up
- natural oil extracts help condition skin
- fragrance-free formula
As you can see this product is a 5 star product, and it is even backed up by Allure Magazine. But this is not the way I found out about this product. More then one YouTuber I have watched at some point has this product in their routine of washing/cleansing their faces. From the details above this product basically just melts away all the makeup on your face when you wash it. (Now if that’s not amazing I don’t know what is!)
Purity is white/clear as you can see from the picture above. When applied to your face it comes out fragrance free. Don’t get it in your mouth because it leaves such a bad taste, and even after taste in your mouth that lingers for quite some time.
Now onto the Pur-lisse cleanser that I have received in my July’s Ipsy bag. I was so disappointed when I opened up my Ipsy bag, and saw this product in there. For one I never heard of this company/brand before, and I I said to myself “Oh another face cleaner, big woop!”. But there was nothing I can do to change it so I gave it a try anyway!
Now never hearing of Pur-Lisse before I was intrigued to see what in the world this company is all about, so I did my research. For those who have never heard of them before here is a quick little breakdown. Pur-Lisse can be found on their website, Amazon,Ipsys, and Birchboxes websites.
Brief description of their brand:
pūr~lisse blends traditional Chinese beauty rituals of yesteryear with today’s French skincare technology. The result — a coveted pure and effective skincare system in sophisticated, functional packaging for your modern lifestyle.pūr~lisse offers superior age prevention, healing hydration and skin-soothing products—the perfect companions for those with sensitive skin, as well as anyone who wants to respect their complexion. We put as much thought into the effective ingredients we include as to the harsh ingredients we don’t.
This one was also a small size only 1 Fl. ounce, and can fit right in the palm of my hand like Purity. The texture, color, and fragrance resembles Purity to a T! Its white/clear, it has no smell and also leaves a bad aftertaste in your mouth! I didnt purposely taste both of these products LOL my boyfriend basically dorwned me in the Purity, and I got some in my mouth with the Pur-lisse.
The product websites states this:
Appreciate your skin, don’t irritate it. Cleanse the day away in one simple step with this sulfate-free blend of Soy Milk, Whole Oat and White Tea. This gentle cleanser leaves your face silky soft, without a trace of impurity. The 4-in-1 sulfate free & non-drying formula gently washes away dirt and makeup (even mascara!), while soothing and toning skin.
I bought the purity about a week before I recieved the Pur-lisse so I had some time to really try out PURITY, and let me just say it does what its supposed to do! Takes all the makeup off your face, BUT THE MASCARA! That really annoyed me because I was so excited about finally finding a product thats supposed to take off ALL my makeup, but I guess not LOL so I took off my mascara the usual way I take it off, and thats with Almays Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads.
When Pur-lisse came I was super excited to try this one because it said something on the bottle that Puritys did NOT say!
“Gently washes away dirt & makeup (EVEN MASCARA) soothes, and tones skin)
You had me at even takes away mascara.
I purposely put on my makeup after receiving this bottle so when I was ready to shower I was all ready to try it!
This did something that Purity did not do in the first place, it took off my mascara. This has now been my go to face wash for taking off my makeup. The mascara just runs off your face, and it is the most amazing thing ever. I know longer need to scrub away the clumps, and chunky-ness of the mascara all over my lashes.
The winner of Cleanser Vs. Cleanser:Battle of the Brands is going to go to Pur-Lisse!
